Our home is a beautiful, serene space nestled next to the Mohonk Preserve, and only an hour and a half from NYC. The quaint farmhouse was originally built in 1848 and has been tastefully modernized, while retaining many original features.
Whether you're interested in hiking, biking, swimming and climbing or just looking for a calm space to read or relax, our home offers a restorative getaway for a week or weekend.
Like many old farmhouses, the house is oriented away from the road facing to the yard and woods. You enter the through french doors on the back porch. The bottom floor is our living space, with a couch, games and tv (with DirecTV). When there are more than 4 guests, this is a great place to use the queen sized air mattress. Like the rest of the house, the space is a fusion of old and new - polished concrete floors in contrast to the axe cut beams that run across the ceiling.
We recently upgraded the heating and cooling system so you'll be comfortable no matter the season. In the winter months, there's a wood burning stove that can be used instead of the heat.
The second floor is the largest and holds the open floor plan kitchen and dining room, as well as the guest bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen is outfitted with all the cookware you'll need to make a good meal. Feeling lazy? The bathroom has an old claw foot tub, perfect for a soak on a chilly day.
The top floor is taken up by the master bedroom and large closet/sitting area. It's a calm, uncluttered space perfect for a good night's sleep. Both beds are from Leesa, Casper's better-reviewed competitor, and bedding is from Brooklinen and Parachute.
Outside, the property offers privacy and tranquility. The porch is a great place to enjoy a cold drink or a meal when it's nice out (there's a charcoal BBQ you can use) and around the corner there's an outdoor shower for summertime. The yard has a dog run if you bring your pup or you can take the trail to the back of the property and check out the pond.
While the house is great for just relaxing, it's location offers a ton of options for both outdoor and indoor activities. The property itself is big enough to explore and the house is close to Mohonk Preserve (less than 5 minutes) and Minnewaska State Park (15 minutes) for hiking, biking, swimming, rock climbing and cross country skiing. If you're more interested in local shops and restaurants, High Falls, New Paltz, Stone Ridge and Rosendale are all within 15 minutes. Kingston, about 20 minutes away, offers even more options, including Smorgasbord Upstate on weekends.+ More
